Sun Country Airlines Software Outage Causes Flight Delays
An internet outage may have caused a problem with connections between airplanes at Sun Country Airport in Miami Gardens. But when airport officials asked passengers to check their email and phone, the problem was quickly corrected.
The Florida Department of Transportation has confirmed that the problem started Monday evening with the recovery of 3,000 computers out of service. “It took about 45 minutes,” said spokesperson David Lofgren. “It was a major inconvenience and it was our understanding that it had been resolved.
Sun Country spokesman Dan Long said Wednesday that there were no flight delays and no disruptions to the airport’s operations. “We were making sure that everyone had their computer on, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We are trying to recover as much as possible,” Long said.
The problem is not limited to Sun Country. Flights at the Miami International Airport, Orlando International Airport, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and the Palm Beach County/St. Lucie County Airport were unaffected by the outage.
In a second outage of its own, the Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday that a problem with a server at Kennedy Space Center was related to the outage that has affected flights in Florida, Virginia, Washington D. , and parts of Oregon. The FAA also identified another possible outage at Dulles Airport in Virginia.
The FAA also said it is investigating the incident. “As part of our investigation we are actively reviewing all the data related to the Florida incident. We will issue an update once we are comfortable with this investigation,” the agency said in a statement. It’s unclear if this is in response to the Florida airport outage or if the FAA will release its information after the investigation is complete.
The FAA’s statement was the latest in an ongoing wave of airline and IT woes. Last month Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administratorrestrictions were placed on the operation of planes flying over the United States due to delays caused by data corruption. A similar issue has been affecting the government’s website.
The latest issues come just a few days after the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) chairman said that a plan to ban the use of cell phones on planes would be unnecessary and would harm the aviation industry.
An AIMS Outage Caused by Sun Country Airlines
Software outage on Wednesday, January 28, causing delays for several Sun Country Airlines (SCT) flights returning to Houston, Texas. After the outage, which began at 6:48 p. , traffic returned to normal, and flights resumed normal operations at 7:02 a.
In this blog, I discuss the impact software could have had on SCT’s flight operations and the time it took to resume normal operations and resume flights, with the hope that it will inform my decision as to how I might deal with any future software outages that might impact SCT’s operations.
I’m not going to list all of the scheduled operations as we did prior to the outage because I didn’t have time to track both of these flights. However, I will focus on the airline’s specific operations on each flight.
The first two flights were scheduled to depart Houston at 3:40 p. It’s the difference between operating on the Sun Country Airlines system on Tuesday and operating on the “Sun Country” Airlines system on December 15, 2015. The same difference will exist on Thursday, as well, and this is the reason for the third flight.
Delta has additional flights scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday that they canceled. The next three flights scheduled on Thursday are also expected to depart at 3:45 p.
The AIMS Outage and the Twin Cities Airport
This is, as the sun rises over the western horizon, something everyone in aviation can expect, but will only take us by surprise, if we’re not prepared.
Airline baggage handlers are getting ready to start a very busy day for one of the world’s largest airlines. There will be more than 130 flights and flights that will stop for no apparent reason between now and 12:01 noon.
When you fly in the sun it can take a while before you realize that you’re flying into a country that has no airline, no aircraft and no airport. It’s not a surprise for most travelers, but when you do realize that you’re in a country where you don’t have an airport and no airline, it can be a shock.
The reason why airport delays are the worst and how they are the result of human error, is explained in this presentation by Scott J. MacIsaac, M. ’s Director in the Office of Aviation Services at the FAA, that the FAA sent out last week. The FAA Office of Aviation Services (OAS) is an Office of the Chief Pilot/Safety Officer (C. ), in charge of the Office of Air Traffic Management.
This presentation will help explain to you, what you should expect if you’re planning a trip by air between now and 12 at noon. It covers the many issues that can come up when you arrive in a country that doesn’t have an airport and no airline. Also will be available for viewing online and on-line.
The FAA is a Federal agency that is the government agency that manages the United States’ aviation infrastructure and how we operate all aspects of aviation, from air traffic control over air flights to cargo planes and the maintenance, safety and operation of the National Airspace System.
When you book a flight to anywhere in the world by air, the FAA has provided all of your airline service details, flight status and flight details, including flight information, baggage claim information, flight status, flight changes, arrival and departure flight information, flight schedule, seat availability, baggage check-in times and airport procedures.
